Longest-running, most-reviewed Airbnb rental in Laramie. My updated midcentury is five blocks to University of Wyoming east campus, two blocks to UW shuttle, half mile to Green Ride shuttle stop, and just over one mile to American Heritage Center.

Enjoy easy access to I-80 and recreation at Happy Jack and Curt Gowdy. As an independent working professional, I will provide you plenty of privacy. Be sure to check out my guidebook for food, drink and recreation suggestions.
Pets are negotiable. Please note that I have a dog myself - a young, exceptionally friendly female cattle dog mix who will wish to make friends with you.
Come visit us in the Laramie Valley, and experience one of the Rocky Mountain West's best kept secrets.

Interaction with Guests
As an independent working professional, I will provide you plenty of privacy. I am available as needed to answer questions about the area, including dining, transportation, recreation, and the university.
Situated between the university campus to the northwest, two public parks, and open prairie to the south, the neighborhood offers the ideal combination of open space and access to local attractions. Near to restaurants, a pub, and grocery.
Catch the free shuttle to campus stopping just two blocks away, walk the five blocks to the campus' east side, or arrive from Colorado on the Green Ride shuttle, which stops .5-.75 miles from here, at the Washakie Dining Hall or the Hilton. If you're without a vehicle, call Laramie's taxi service, Here and There, or take the university's complimentary shuttle, SafeRide, during the evenings.
No smoking, please. When booking, provide your estimated arrival time, and please call or text me the day of your arrival to confirm. I realize plans sometimes change during travel, so please keep me posted if yours do. Please park your vehicle in front of the house on the street.
Spend your evening reading, working on wifi, or sleeping soundly in the comfy full size bed. Find amenities like towels, shampoo, conditioner, soap and body wash in your room.
Courtney was very polite and helpful. It was our pleasure to meet her and speak with her. She was great about staying in touch and helping us navigate to her place, as well as providing suggestions for local eateries. Courtney's dog is so adorable, shy, quiet, but very friendly. It really was nice to stay with Courtney. The room and bathroom were so-so, and the bed was a bit old and worn. The neighborhood initially seemed a bit sketchy, but turned out to be safe enough. Also, the listing says that parking is available on the premises, but it was street parking.
While we would stay in this type of accommodation in the future, it would have to be for a much lower price, as $60 per night is much more than this place is really worth - at least compared with about 20 other places I've stayed. My guess is that the excessive price reflects that there is probably more demand for airbnb in Laramie WY than there are available accommodations, so Courtney is only competing against local motels, which charge as much or more. But, other than the price, Courtney is a very nice person and this was a nice place to stay.
Courtney était présente à notre arrivée et s'est faite discrète. Elle a mis son logement à notre disposition. Le déjeuner se composait uniquement de céréales, le lit était un peu juste pour 2 personnes, la salle de bain et la cuisine pas très propres.
This was a wonderful first experience with AirB&B. Courtney and Bob were fantastic and very accommodating given our schedule. They were flexible with our schedule, including a last minute change of plan to the "greater plan". I would highly recommend to those looking to stay in the Laramie area!
About the Host, Courtney
I'm Laramie's "oldest" host and I really enjoy being a part of the Airbnb community, as both host and guest. I grew up in Wisconsin, and made Wyoming my home eight years ago. Here I oversee the academic programs in Environment and Natural Resources at the University of Wyoming. I love to travel, to spend time outdoors in our beautiful mountains, and I adore teaching.
